PHP, which stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most famous general-purpose scripting languages out there. Any site or Internet application based on PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is installed, which makes the language really universal and it’s scarcely a surprise that there are actually a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to develop an interactive website with a lot of different options. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will serve unique content to each visitor despite the fact that the page URL will be the same. In comparison, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst setting up a given website must be activated on the web server in order for the site to behave properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which suggests that your sites will run faultlessly no matter if your PHP scripts are outdated. We realize that an old site does not invariably mean an insecure one as you may have done lots of mods to its source code. This is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which one will be enabled for your shared hosting account. The version can be changed with a single click of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will be applied straight away. If you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option to use a different PHP version for each domain name of yours simultaneously.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple PHP versions, so you’ll be able to run all the Internet apps that you’ve created over the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every single semi-dedicated account, will allow you to set the needed version with a single click. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you would like to host multiple websites under the same account and they have distinct requirements as regards the hosting platform, you’ll be able to pick a different version for each one of them irrespective of which version has been selected for the account as a whole. That’s accomplishable owing to our in-house developed cloud hosting platform, which allows us to run multiple versions of PHP concurrently. In stark contrast, the vast majority of web hosting companies normally support one, maximum two versions.
